not a stone's throw separates us from
the walls of the fort. We can look
down the throats of the rusty old

Among the latter is a stately man of

display of colors, followed by a mu
tual disappointment. We supposed
them to be Danes, and they evident
ly took us for Italians like themselves.
Again we are on the European side.
The green vineyards and olive groves
with the cottages dotted about on the
mountain sides form a panorama very
pleasant to eyes satiated with sea and
sky for forty-two days. Every crest
and crag is crowned with a little
building in the shape of a lighthouse.
These are watch towers built for the
purpose of keeping and eye on the
uncertain movements of the erratic
Moors inprdcr to dissuade them from
a naughty habit they had of running
over the way when the A Igerine stock
of Houris ran short and borrowing; a
few Senorita Visigoths while old
padre Visigoth was out grubbing in
his olive orchard. From the Spanish
side a splendid view of the Atlas
range is obtained and of all grotesque
and fantastic shapes they-1 take the

the legend that they are a petrified

John Robinson come to grief perhaps.

t,,e ravine between this remarkable
mountain and the African pillar of

we are within pistol shot of the mole.
Affairs begin to assume an intensely

to whether we will weather the point

retreat, and as a Yankee skipper re

war in the bay dips his colors, the
light-house keeper turns disappoint

floats in the azure waters of the Med

the mole we could have thrown a cat
ashore. Not being possessed of the
necessary feline however we could
only content ourselves with observ
ing that such a thing was possible.

Ugly Spots on Their Record.
BlaineJ8 Use of the Cipher Logan in
a Snap His Anti- War Record.
New Bork Sun's Special.
Washington, June 18. A very
careful examination of the records of
Blaine and Logan has alrtady begun.
In Logan's case it is susceptible of
proof by gentleman in this city that
at the beginning of the war he was as
bitter iu his opposition to what he
called the coercing of the Southern
States as any secessionist. To one
gentlemen, now living here, who met
Logan on March 9, 1861, Logan said
that he regarded the attcmp of Lin
coin to coerce sovereign States as un
constitutional and infamous, and if it
was persisted in he would go to his
borne in southern Illinois aud raise a
regiment to help those States defend
themselves against Federal encroach
ment. Logan's early secession pro
clivities iu southern Illinois will.be
made public. Logan expects to spend
the summer months in Maine, prob
ably taking a cottage at Mt. Desert.
This will give him the opportunity
to be close to Blaine.
When Mr. Blaine was returning
from Garfield's funeral he said to a
friend, who suggested that he would
be the next republican nominee :
''No, I am discharged cured." Yet
notwithstanding this assertion, little
facts are leaking out which show that
the White House fever is never Cured.
Mr. Blaine, for instance, was in con
stant communion by cypher telegrams
with his managers in Chicago. He
followed their advice in all things,
and it is asserted that when he went
to the railway station on Monday he
had not fully decided to go North un
til a cypher dispatch was handed to
him at the depot telling him to go.
That Mr. Blaine not only knew who
the agents were who went through
the South, but also suggested some of
them, as certain. Assertions about
the use of money to secure his nomi
nation are being made in greater and
greater detail. The editor of the Sun
day Capital asserts that money in
large quantities was used to secure
Blaine's nomination. Nor was there
anything haphazard in the way in
which the bribery was done. A man
to do the buying was assigned to each
of the several delegations from the
South. Thirty votes were wanted not
later than the third ballot, and prices
were arranged for the first, second
and third ballots. It has been asser
ted in detail that 010,000 was sent to
the Sherman House for six votes
from South Carolina, but Smalls
watched his delegation so closely that
only two were obtained. The same
sum was ready for six votes from
North Carolina and Tennessee. It
was asserted by a Texas delegate that
from $750 to 84,000 had been des
tributed among the delegates from
It is probable that the story of
Blaine's attempt to have Garfield's
Cabinet during his illness declare
that the President was unable to per
form the duties of the office and urge
Arthur to assume the functions of
the office during the disability will
be told. It was believed at the time
that nothing but the threat of Mac
Veagh prevented Blaine from over
ruling the rest of the Cabinet who
were opposed to this dangerous line
One of Blaine's leading managers
said yesterday that arrangements were
being made for a meeting between
Blaine and Conkling early in August.
Through the intervention of friends a
reconciliation has been effected. Ac
cording to this man's assertfon, Conk
ling is willingto makeseveral speeches
for Blaine after the October elections.
This assertion agrees with an opinion
expressed by Collector Robertson at
Chicago. It was said as a result of
such action Conkling would probably
be returned to the Senate as Lap

For Elector at Large.
It i more than probable that the
name of Hon. W. M. Robbins of
Statesvile will be presented to the
State convention as a suitable candi
date for Presidential elector, on the
Democratic ticket from the State
at large, as it is understood that his
friends re anxious to bring him
back into active politics.
Maj. Robbins, if appointed, and we
understand that he would accept the
appointment, would make an admira
ble, effective and energetic canvass of
the State for the Democratic nominee
of the Chicago convention.
He is probably as well posted on
national politics as any man in North
Carolina, and he is one of the best
public speak ers in the State. If the
coming canvass, as many suppose, is
to be hot and heavy, Maj. Robbins
can hit as many and as hard blows
as any man we know of.
We believe no better selection
could be made. Maj. Robbins never
fails to interest and rouse his audi
tors. ome of the English medical jour
nals have already begun to point out
the great importance of not over-feeding
infants with starcy foods, such as
bread, farina, gruel, etc., as the Warm
season approaches. According to au
thorities like Sir James Paget, such
over-feeding is a fruitful cause of the
large infant mortality in warm weath
er. The one article most necessary to
the life of a child is water.
London, June 20. A Berlin dis
patch to the Morning T?ost says that
several important arrests were made
yesterday in connection with an in
cendiary conspiracy. This conspira
cy it is asserted, has ramifications in
America. Should inquiry prove that
the German conspirators have receiv
ed funds from America, immediate
diplomatic action will be taken by
the German representative at Wash
ington. Washington, June 20. Wm. H.
Dempsey, a well known bookseller
and statiouer of this city, has been
arrested on a charge of being connect
ed with navy department frauds.
Detective Wm. P. Wood has repre
sented to the secretary of the navy
that he has found evidence of even
more extensive frauds in other bu
reaus of the navy department than in
that of medicine and surgery.
Nashville, June 20. The Dem
ocratic State convention adjourned
last night after re-nominating Gov.
Bate by acclamation. Th platform
endorses the administration of Gov.
Bate, regards the adjustment of the
debt of Tennessee as final, and pledges
faithful -maintenance of its conditions,
and favors a tariff for sufficient reve
nue to defray the expenses of the gov
ernment. "I will not allow any one to say
that any man served in the war with
more zeal than I did," is Senator Lo
gan's blustering way of extolling his
own ardent patriotism. Perhaps no
body wants to say that, but we take
the liberty without the Senator's per
mission, of saying that some men
made up their minds on which side
to serve with consideraqle more
promptness than John A. Logan did.
